Oasis Children’s Ministry
Oasis’s children’s ministry’s goals are to introduce kids to Jesus, teaching them how to have a GROWING relationship with Him, and find and follow the plan He has for their lives.
Camp Oasis has all the best things from summer camp! Kids are welcome to come early to hang out in our indoor playground, shop in our pretend store, make up a story to perform on our children’s theatre stage, or draw on our chalkboard walls. Then, from 10:30 – 11:30 during our adult worship service, we host a worship experience tailored specifically for kids aged six weeks – fourth grade. (Fifth graders and older youth participate in youth ministries.)
We provide infant nursery for children six weeks – confident walkers; toddler nursery for walkers – two years; preschool class for three years (and potty trained) – completed kindegarten; and elementary class for first – fourth grade.
Our dedicated and trained volunteers use music and hands-on activities to bring the Bible to life each week. Our curriculum is from Kidmo (www.kidmo.com) and features Little K for preschoolers and Johnny Rogers in the elementary class. The toddler nursery uses Play & Worship for Toddlers and Twos from Group Publishing (www.group.com).
We encourage families to have faith conversations together at home through weekly take-home pages and we also recommend family Bible studies.
Oasis Childrens Ministry provides several events throughout the year focused on helping adults and children reach out to the community. Last year, some of those events included neighborhood Easter egg hunts, Trunk or Treat, a children’s Christmas musical, a baby dedication, and vacation bible school.
